Notes

A bowl barrow located on a prominent upland ridge to the north east of Long Lane Farm, Berrynarbor and overlooking the valley of a tributary of the River Yeo. The barrow survives as a circular mound, visible on aerial photographs, which measures 10.6 metres in diameter and 0.6 metres high. The surrounding ditch from which material to construct the mound was derived is partially visible to the north and south as a flattened area up to 1 metre wide; elsewhere it survives as a buried feature. This feature is not visible on aerial photographs. The south west quadrant of the mound shows evidence of excavation.
